Stripped: mountain bike movie

Graham at Go Clipless posted recently about capturing flow in mountain bike photography and since I read his post I’ve been on the lookout for good examples, particularly in MTB videos. The trailer for Stripped seems to do a good job at capturing flow, and the video isn’t confined to just one style of riding …

No Way! The Hans Rey Story video clip

I came across a video preview of the Hans Rey Story on YouTube today and I have to say once again, Hans Rey is amazing. There are clips on there of his famous mountain bike bungee jump and his 13 story ride down the side of a building, among other amazing footage. If you like …

MTB non-profit: Gang Resistance Education and Training

Ah, the seductive powers of the mountain bike. In Sacramento a new program aims to use bicycling (I assume they mean mountain biking, cycling is still a pretty elite sport) to lure kids away from gangs and negative influences. The article is sparse on details but it sounds like an innovative way to build kids …

MTB lessons for business

In perhaps another example of mountain biking becoming the next golf, Paul Kedrosky writes “Everything I Know About Business I Learned from Mountain-biking.” Paul makes some good points about looking where you want to go and knowing your limits. Maybe there’s a book idea somewhere in there? Lance certainly does well on the corporate speaking …

MTB crash video

Nice video compilation of mountain bike crashes on Google Video. Actually the vid is a little slow getting started but hold on – there’s plenty of pain to keep you entertained.

Mountain bike job: Gear tester/writer

For some reason these mountain bike job posts always seem to come to me on Fridays -¬† which is too bad since most of us dream of these types of jobs on Monday mornings :(. This week’s job is perhaps the one job that will make you question your career choice the most – Mountain …

Mountain bike job: Photographer

I’ve written a couple times about mountain bike jobs (here and here) and somehow I keep finding other jobs I’ve overlooked. The latest gig I found is mountain bike photographer and if you’re looking for a role model, Seb Rogers seems like a pretty good guy to look up to. His portfolio is pretty amazing …

Race at the pole (North Pole that is)

For those who haven’t heard, the first ever mountain bike race at the north pole will take place on April 7. There are 13 riders signed up for the 2007 race, though sadly registration is closed at this time. Have no fear though, you too can race your mountain bike to the North Pole in …

Mountain bike patrol

A while ago I posted a list of bike jobs and apparently I overlooked one mountain biking occupation: mountain bike police. Yep, there’s even a Police Mountain Bike Association and this year’s annual conference will be held in Baton Rouge. Last year more than 300 people attended the conference and this year’s conclave will take …
